Dear parent/carer/ teacher
The website, www.newgenerationteachers.com is designed for teenagers (age 13-19) who might be interested in learning to teach. The site works whether or not teenagers have a younger child in the family (for teaching practice).
There’s a certificate of recognition to donwload for doing a short course that includes designing lessons for a younger child.
There are lots of other advantages and skills that course participants will develop when they use the site. These include project-planning and looking for creative solutions. There are also top tips about how scientists and other scholars use different areas of knowledge we learn about at school – to address world problems.
The NewGenerationTeachers website has projects for teenagers to do with each session. We don’t ask young people for their names or contact details. But parents/carers/teachers can forward teenagers’ projects to us – for display and prizes. If we can come back to you with details – let us know by emailing us.
We want the NewGenerationTeachers website and other resources we create to be as useful as possible. Please let us know what support you hope a teenager will get out of using the site – and why. Email us at LASAR@canterbury.ac.uk
